Today many teens tend to treat each other very badly. They criticize and degrade, judge and ostrasize. Most teens do not see what their words do to people and how much it affects them. Depression is becoming more and more common in teenagers, the cause, most explain, is other people that ridicule them for their looks and or character. Also suicide is becoming very common in teens as well. Bully is just another word for murderer, bullying is just another word for killing. The consequences of bullying.... none really effective.
